Long lines reported across region


BLUEFIELD Va. (WVVA) - Heavy turnout was reported at precincts across the Two Virginias Tuesday morning.

Town Hall in Bluefield, Va., reported just under 1,000 voters before Noon. WVVA News received reports of voters waiting in line at precincts in Mercer and Tazewell counties.

Voter turnout was expected to be high, driven by the closely-contest presidential contest between President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney.

Voters in both Virginias will also decide races in the U.S. Senate and House. West Virginia voters also have a choice for governor.

Polls close at 7 p.m. in Virginia and 7:30 p.m. in West Virginia.
